    My Windows Kira is in my kitchen. My iMac, which is updated to Sierra version 10.12.1 is in my living room ( about 50 ft away) Both machines are connected using ethernet to a router that is in a room equidistant between them. The iMac has an all in one Laser printer connected to it. Both Kira and iMac are on the same Sky network. I want to be able to print from my Toshiba Kira and to share files and photographs if that is possible.

    I am not an expert in these matters and would welcome some help.

    How to Share Files Between Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs on a Network

    The following may be helpful for Windows 10 ...

    Short description for Windows 7 and 8/8.1 file and printer sharing:

    Go into the Network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel or from the Network icon in the Notification Area. Your network must be designated 'Private' (or 'Home' or 'Work'). Click on Change advanced sharing settings. In the Private or Home or Work section you can configure File and printer sharing, Public folder sharing, and Password protected sharing.

    You may want to change the Workgroup name. To check it or change it right click on "Computer" and select "Properties."

    You must uninstall or properly configure any non-windows firewall (security suite).
